Workplace Initiative
Joseph Sweere, DC, Chad Henriksen, & Gregory DeNunzio, DC

The provision of on-site medical services now exists within thousands of American companies and has become a rapidly expanding trend. Approximately two-thirds of workplace disorders involve the neuromusculoskeletal system and result in the greatest costs, absenteeism, work restrictions and worker turnover. For this reason well-trained doctors of chiropractic are now being invited to serve as on-site care providers. This educational presentation will provide attendees with practical information on how they can serve in this exciting area of professional service.

9:15–10:05 a.m.

X-Ray
Stephen Fridinger, DC

Dr. Fridinger’s radiology lecture at last year’s MCA conference was an experiment. He wanted to go one step further than just the typical “case studies” approach in which he discusses the history of a patient and the findings of the imaging. The challenge is, most of the time, he does not hear what happens to the patient after the imaging is done. Last year he tried a different approach. He entitled his lecture, “In The Trenches” and invited four other clinicians to discuss their cases firsthand. The clinician would present the patient’s history and exam findings. Dr. Fridinger would discuss the imaging findings and the clinician would finish up with how the patient was managed and the outcome. The attending audience felt that getting the “full” story from start to finish was quite educational and great discussion emerged.

Dr. Fridinger is back this year with another episode of “In The Trenches”. This year Dr. Fridinger invited another chiropractor, a pain management physician and a spine surgeon to discuss a wide array of topics and cases including disc replacement procedures, the latest in different injection procedures, including prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma and stem cell injections. If there’s time, the story of Dr. Fridinger’s elective brain surgery will be told with video clips of the actual surgery.

We look forward to seeing you there!

We will discuss what insurance companies are looking for and why we are the low hanging fruit. More importantly we will touch on how you can survive an audit from both a documentation aspect as well as from a clinical necessity aspect.

Chiropractic Identity and Public Perception
Dennis Marchiori, DC

We know the chiropractic profession has more to offer the health of citizens than is generally recognized by the public. In this session, Dr. Marchiori will discuss the importance of professional identity and public perception by providing an overview of the first year of data from the Gallup-Palmer Report and related research. According to a new Gallup report commissioned by Palmer College of Chiropractic, 33.6 million U.S. adults (14 percent) seek chiropractic care each year. This report, officially named, the “Gallup-Palmer College of Chiropractic Inaugural Report: Americans' Perceptions of Chiropractic,” also indicates that more than half of U.S. adults view doctors of chiropractic positively and agree they're effective at treating spine pain. This first-ever nationally representative survey measured perceptions of, and experiences with, chiropractic among U.S. adults. This important research from the patient’s point of view on chiropractic and chiropractors provides valuable information that can be used by individual practitioners and the chiropractic profession overall to improve the health to citizens.
